Texas based artist Delita Martin will present her artwork and new book “Shadows in the Garden” at the Community Artists’ Collective Saturday, July 13, at an opening reception at 6 p.m.
An artist talk beginning at 6:30 will be followed by a book signing with books available for purchase. The “Shadows in the Garden” exhibition, which is in association with PrintHouston 2019, continues through July 27.
The book focuses on the work and artistic journey of Martin. It highlights art from several exhibitions and works held in various collections around the country. Contents of the book include a foreword by Dallas artist and curator Vicki Meek and an interview with artist Joshua Asante of Little Rock, Ark. Dr. Kheli R. Willetts and Gary Reece of Houston have each contributed original essays. The book features full color images of Martin’s works.
The works included in this publication examine the transition of women into their “spiritual self” and reinforce the bond among women and how they co-exist in the physical and spiritual realms.
“Through the layering of various mediums and symbols I can pull the viewer out of a logical and common world and place them within a space that offers a glimpse into the spirit world,” Martin states.
